Dilruk Jayasinha – Victorious Lion

We only link to official ticket sellers for Dilruk Jayasinha.

The literal translation of ‘Jayasinha’ is ‘Victorious Lion’. 

It’s a name befitting of a leader or a king. It’s a name with swagger. But is it suitable for Dilruk?  

Dil’s certainly had a pretty victorious year. He’s performed sell out shows around the country and the world, including the invite-only Just For Laughs festival in Montreal. He’s been all over your TV screens, on shows like Have You Been Paying Attention? and Utopia. But he still doesn’t feel like the triumphant king of the animal kingdom his name suggests.   

It’s time for Dilruk to work out if he is a Victorious Lion by nature or by name only.  

“An absolute delight, guaranteed to send you into the night with a broad smile.” Chortle 

“Fast pace, excellent comedic timing… you won’t be disappointed.” ★★★★ The Age 

“A side-splitting and thought-provoking night of comedy.” ★★★★½ The West Australian  

“A brilliant hour.” ★★★★ Herald Sun
